2009 Finca Sobreño Toro Ildefonso - 92 PTS - WA

Wine Advocate 92 Pts"The 2009 Finca Sobreno Ildefonso is pure Tinto de Toro, a blend from two parcels of 80-year-old vines. It sees 18 months in new French oak. It has a gorgeous, marmalade-scented bouquet with hints of blueberry and black olive tapenade that are very well-defined. The palate is full-bodied with ripe, supple tannins and layers of spicy red fruit interwoven with marmalade, clove, white pepper and bay. It is very well-balanced, powerful but not over-powering, and should age well over the next decade. Drink 2014-2025."

2009 Finca Sobreño Toro Ildefonso - 93 PTS - IWC

Tanzer International Wine Cellar 93 Pts"(made from vines that are over 80 years old; aged in all new French oak for 18 months): Inky purple. An intensely perfumed bouquet evokes candied dark berries, woodsmoke, incense and violet pastille. Stains the palate with concentrated, almost shockingly vivacious black and blue fruit flavors. Smooth, sweet and expansive on the clinging, energetic finish. - JR"

2010 Finca Sobreno Ildefonso Toro - 90 PTS - WA

wa90"The 2010 Finca Sobreno Ildefonso is a selection from two 80-year-old vineyards fermented in 2,000-liter oak vats and aged in barrique. It has a balsamic nose with plenty of dried herbs and spices (black pepper, clove), with the imprint from the barrel in the background. The palate is medium to full-bodied, with round tannins and some warmth towards the finish. This is a serious Toro. Drink now-2018. - Luis Gutierrez"

2010 Finca Sobreño Toro Ildefonso - 93 PTS - IWC

tanzer iwc 93 pts"(made from vines that are reportedly over 80 years old and aged in new French oak for 18 months): Bright purple. Aromas of blackberry, cherry-vanilla, candied flowers and spicecake, with a bright mineral overtone adding vivacity. Pliant and deep in black and blue fruit and violet pastille flavors, with a firm mineral spine and building smokiness. This powerful but very well-balanced wine finishes with excellent clarity, plush tannins and superb spicy, floral persistence."

2011 Finca Sobreño Toro Ildefonso - 93 PTS - VINOUS

vinous logo"(from vines that are reportedly more than 80 years old and raised in new French oak barrels for 18 months) Brilliant ruby. Fresh black and blue fruits, incense and candied violet on the highly perfumed nose. Fleshy, seamless and broad on the palate, offering energetic blueberry and cherry-vanilla flavors and an exotic touch of Asian spices. The blue fruit quality carries strongly through the finish, which hangs on with excellent tenacity and harmonious tannins. - Josh Raynolds"
